This is a great park -- probably the nicest park I've seen. It follows the Ilm, and is a short walk from the center of the old town (perhaps 200 meters), with numerous smaller areas separated by landscaping. There are vistas, relaxing benches in ones...More

One of the nicest parks in Germany I have seen, though we had a wonderful weather and that also has had an effect on the experience. A lot of interesting houses, mostly Goethe's Gardenhouse, its garden can be seen for free. Really lovely visit!

we didn't go in to the Goethe Gartenhaus but had a lovely walk (it was a really hot day) - great contrast to the town

This is a lovely park that seems to be popular with locals and tourists alike. It is very big and you can spend a whole afternoon just wandering around. It is a nice place for a picnic.

After reading the great reviews we decided to visit the park. It's huge and whilst we did initially lose our way finding the Garten house we stumbled across a Russian graveyard which in the frost was thought provoking. The park is vast and beautiful. So...More

If you like to wander and loose yourself in time a little, take wonderful pictures or just sit under a tree and read, this parc is great! Wonderful for jogging.

Was in town for business and found the paths to be ideal for a quick run. They are well kept paths that follow a scenic stream. Nice and flat too for an easy jog or speed run.
